Visa Run to Kota Bharu, Malaysia (3 days and 2 nights)
You can get your visa renewed with Samuidaytours stress free and relaxing three-day trip to Kota Bharu in Malaysia. The trip ensures that your time is put to good use, allowing you to shop and explore whenever possible.
It is not uncommon for people visiting Koh Samui to want to extend their stay. In the past, people had to leave Thailand to get their visas renewed and their stay extended, but now you can take the visa run directly from Koh Samui to the Royal Thai consulate in Kota Bharu in Malaysia.
Your Visa Run Journey
The journey begins as you head to Raja Ferry pier in Lipa Noi and board the ferry to Donsak. From there you will be received by Herbert, a multilingual Austrian who has been living in Koh Samui for several years and runs these professional trips and visa runs. It won’t be wrong to say that he is a visa expert. From the pier, you will board a mini-bus, and the mini-buses will leave together for the Thai-Malaysian border.
You will reach your destination for the day in the evening and stay at a hotel on the Thai side of the border. Before going to sleep, your passport, paperwork, and visa fee will be collected and kept safe while you sleep to ensure you have everything you need to get your visa and to avoid accidents or loss.
The buses will leave early in the morning the next day, at 5 AM, and cross the Thai border as soon as it opens. During the crossing, you have to get your passports stamped as you leave Thailand and enter Malaysia. On the other side of the border, taxis will be waiting to take you straight to Kota Bharu.
You will be dropped at the KB shopping mall when it opens, and Herbert will take your passport and visa application so that they can be processed and stamped at the Royal Thai Consulate. Your passports will be returned to you around 2:30 PM, and then you will begin your journey back on taxis.
This is where the return part of your Koh Samui visa run begins. You will cross border back into Thailand where a mini-bus will be waiting for you. Given the ferry schedules, you will stop at Hat Yai for five hours to freely enjoy the nightlife and explore the area, go to clubs, enjoy the scenery, etc.
And at 1 AM, the mini bus will take you to Donsak so that you can take the 6 AM ferry back to Koh Samui. That’s all!
